Working & Study Groups

Working Group (WG) is responsible for a precise programme and the evaluation of the results obtained. Its aim is to speed up the acquisition of results through co-ordinated international activities and to avoid duplication of research effort.

The Working Groups aim is to:

  1. Foster collaboration between scientists interested in problems common to several members of WPRS,
  2. Share experience and eventually facilities, with special emphasis on joint or complementary programmes of work,
  3. Increase the general knowledge in the area of interest of its members and offer this knowledge to the whole scientific community (the Bulletins serve as a vehicle).

Working Groups are led by a convenor and are supported through funds from the membership fees. Participation in a particular Working Group is open to anyone actively concerned with the Group’s specific topic.

Study Groups (SG) are Working Groups which are under construction.
